 Luperon - Profile


Luperon harbour (also known as Puerto Blanco) is a large enclosed bay providing excellent shelter (hurricane hole). Its position on the north coast, opposite the Turks and Caicos Islands, make it a useful shelter for yachts with southbound cruising plans and is the first and only really major anchorage for boats heading East.

Unfortunately however, whilst Luperon has a welcoming long-term cruising community, the local Authorities (in the recent past) have not been so friendly towards yachts and "made up" charges seem to increase on an annual basis. Cruisers considering cruising to this port should read all the information below, including feedback from cruisers at the bottom of the page, before deciding if they want to deal with the potential problems that may arise should they visit.

Cruising reports elsewhere on the net in 2016 have been more favourable, so perhaps the "illegal fees" are a thing of the past. A new commandante has been appointed and he appears to be more sympathetic towards the yachting community. Note however that commandantes change on a regular basis in the DR.

Luperon is a small rural town, has markets and hardware stores, discos, a hospital, police, and two dentists.
A useful cruisers' guide to Luperon.

Position 19° 54'22"N, 70° 56'34"W (bay entrance)


See DR Formalities for detailed clearance information and fees.

Whilst the authorities in Luperon have received many negative reports in the past, it does appear in 2016 that they are showing greater compliance with the official rate list (see Clearance Fees for the DR).

Anchor anywhere and hoist a Q flag and wait for Dominican entry officials. You will likely be visited by 3 officials: the Military, Immigration and Drug Control. It is customary to offer them a cold soft drink.

After the inspection on board, take your dinghy to the government dock and walk into town to complete paperwork ashore. At the outskirts, to the left is a path leading to a small bridge and the hilltop naval outpost. The commandante will record your presence, giving you legal permission to land.

All officials are situated in a group of temporary portacabins at the end of the pier next to the dinghy dock. Visit Immigration first where you pay for your vessel and number of passengers and get your tourist cards. Then the Port Authority who just want vessel information. Finally the Department of Agriculture where there is a small fee to cover garbage disposal etc.

Obtaining an international zarpe here is reported to take some time, so visit the authorities 2 days before departure to ensure you get the zarpe the day you need it.

Ocean World Marina, just East of Luperon, is also an official port of entry.

Important Note re. Clearance Charges in Luperon
Luperon has a long history of "made up charges". In the past cruisers have reported being charged harbour entrance fees, pet landing fees and a daily anchoring fee etc. These charges are all "made up" by the local officials. Read feedback from cruisers (in comments at bottom of page) before considering this port as an option.

The Tourism office are also happy to help with any problems, complaints or advice on local information.

The Puerto Blanco Yacht Club, Marina & Restaurant is a gathering place for cruising sailors and various social activities are organised. It underwent a major renovation during the Autumn of 2014 and re-opened in December 2014 with a new owner Leonard Perdomo (Leo).

There is now also two new marinas, the refurbished one at the Luperon Yacht Club and another, Marina Tropical, further improving facilities here.

Papo (call on VHF channel 68) can help with moorings.

See Report on Luperon, for tips on anchoring. Be aware of the risk of entering Luperon bay at night due to numerous fishing nets located outside the channel.

Access to the harbour is shallow and the harbour water is foul. One should avoid swimming or using a watermaker here.

Non-potable water is available at the boatyard and the dinghy dock near the old yacht club. Potable water can be delivered to your boat (as can fuel).


In response to the recent increase in thefts and boat burglaries in this port, on November 14, 2018, stakeholders in Luperon met and roles/jurisdictions were clarified, including correct crime reporting procedures. To enhance the security on the water the Navy comandante from Puerto Plata reinstated a patrol boat in Luperon bay with immediate effect. Initially, provisional equipment will be used, but a bigger patrol boat in association with a small patrol boat are expected.

Locally, the Navy (call name: Richard) can be reached on VHF channel 68 24/7 in case of emergency. The National Police indicated that a 911-call will activate the patrols around the bay at all times.

Cruisers have reported that it is wise to lock your dinghy at the public dinghy dock and at night. It's also important you lock your boat when going ashore and at night. Thefts were common here in the past and appear to be more prevalent this year after a period of relative calm.

If leaving your boat here for any length of time it is recommended you appoint a caretaker. Only use caretakers recommended and used by other cruising boats.

E-mail from Sobeida Brito - Tourisim office Luperon (

We have been working so hard the last two months to make positive changes (in Luperon for visiting yachts) and passing resolutions (like agriculture now costs 20 dollars less). Also the Immigration tax per boat.

We have a new commandant who speaks fluent English.

Yesterday we finished with the navy to organize anchoring at the entrance to the bay. There were 16 boats in the middle of the entrance. We fix electricity. We also had a meeting with all the authorities to find the best way to keep and bring more visitors to Luperon.

There have been problems in the past, but not any more. Please...we aren't bad people, give us the opportunity to show you we need and we want visitors...don't judge by one case, one person's mistake for all the citizens. Let's tell the good things and we attract best things.

Reported by the Caribbean Security & Safety Net - 18th August, 2017:
An unoccupied trimaran on a mooring in Luperon bay had its primary mooring vandalized (released) and the in the water backup/secondary anchor and rode stolen. The boat went adrift and had damage to its stern mounted radio antenna as it struck another yacht before eventually grounding itself in the mudflats. Both yachts had minor scratches. The owner/captain made a report to the local police.

Luperon is one of the best Hurricane Holes I have (come across). Avoid Marina Tropical, (but) the rest of the people and the Boaters community are great and very helpful.

Luperon: Vandalism
Reported by CSSN: 28 April 2017

A yacht was tied to a mooring in Luperon Bay for a few hours before the owner went ashore. Vandals released the yacht, and removed all lines from it and the mooring itself during daylight hours. The yacht was seen adrift, an emergency VHF call was made and the yacht was recovered undamaged . No police report was made.

Luperon: Dinghy and Outboard Theft (not locked)
Reported by CSSN: 6 January 2017, at 0230, owner went on deck and discovered that the dinghy painter had been cut. The thief had been very quiet, neither of his two dogs had been disturbed. He heard an outboard in the distance that sounded like his. Radio calls (68/16/09) to authorities were not answered, but another cruiser responded and helped with a search.
At 0330 the dinghy, minus its 30HP outboard was found adrift off the outside beach. Tire tracks and drag marks indicated the outboard was stolen with the assistance of a vehicle. No one was on the beach at this point, including members of the Commandante’s squad who claim to patrol there from 6PM to 6AM.
The next day a report was made to the police, the Commandante’s office, and on the local VHF net.

Moorings in Luperon Bay:
I do not recommend using any mooring in the bay unless you see the installation. Last week 2 boats broke off in 20 knots of wind. Just drop you anchor with ALOT of chain. There is still a dinghy dock at the city. I recommend to use a stern anchor for the dinghy.
We rented a car from Franklin for 25$US.
Here in Luperon there is lots of fruit and vegetables at small stands. For meat take a ride with a car to Sosua..Super a Publix.

We are staying at the Luperon Yacht Club, with electricity and water plus A/C. Our cost per week is 69 US$ for a 42 foot sailboat. James Beneete is the dock master. He is a great guy. For the all Customs fees with a dog it cost us 139 US$. The Customs and Immigration were nice. At the Luperon YC the swimming pool does not work and the bar and restaurant are closed. Andy is still here and will fill your jerry cans with fuel. For 8 jerry cans it cost us 135 US$. Call him on VHF Ch:68. There is still a cruisers net on Ch:68 on Sunday and Wednesday. No security issues.

Update of our May experience (see below). Thank you noonsite!

Departing Luperon recently was even more problematic. Took 2 full days to get a despacho. We lost a day on our weather window. The new Commandante seemed very sincere in his efforts to dissuade the port man from charging us $170 in harbor entrance and anchor/mooring fees. We had our receipts to show we had been at private dock/Marina the entire time....which paid for use of that private dock and various other usage. The port man "Freddy" refused to look at our documents....again. He demanded US$ and would not accept DR pesos. We are now very familiar with all the issues of Luperon having been there over a season. We demanded a receipt with the English translation included. The receipt said for "use of the facilities and harbor entrance fee". There are no facilities.
The dingy dock is partially sunk and is seriously broken to the extent numerous cruisers had nasty injuries. No lights at night, frequent theft. No viable garbage receptacles, and under no circumstances would we dare park our vehicles there near dock. Trash and foul smells scattered about.

In October the Dominican Republic's Attorney General Señor Brito, for President Medina, came to Luperon and inspected this situation. He declared all the harbor and tourist card fees charged there to be illegal. They stopped charging briefly, then started it again when a number of us cruisers departed a couple of weeks ago. They have had 4 different Commandantes during our stay. We were told explicitly that the port man has final authority over all other tourism agencies assigned to process entry. So in fact there are 6 agencies, not five, at Luperon. Freddy rules.

Interestingly, in the fall a national port authority "Escoto" went on a tv interview making it clear they were targeting Luperon for extra fees, and spoke in terms of US$ which blatantly targets the US. ALL national rate sheets are in RD pesos. We have the transcript.

We are distraught at the suggestion of Papo to manage anything for cruisers. Please do not use him, or do so at serious risk. We did not use him but were witness to some tragic events that fell upon friends using him. There have been theft and extortion issues for cruisers associated with his 'management'. Please contact Pantaenius Insurance to learn if they would recommend him is our advice. They had an in depth experience.
We and another vessel did have fuel contamination issues from Luperon fuel in spite of using bios, baja filter, fuel polishing and numerous filters to engine that were new on departure. Our engine failed off of Cape France's Viajo at 9pm. Changed ALL filters again. Another that departed when we did had his engine fail numerous times while crossing the Mona from dirty fuel. He changed the filters several times underway, and feared he would run out of filters! He too had polished, used baja, and new filters before departing.

Puerto Blanco Marina is very good. We were at their dock. As long as Leo is there you will have very good food, facilities, dingy and main dock, and safety. Our vehicle was always safe there, as are the cruisers who have motorcycles parked there.

We had nearly identical experience to Mr. Pederson. We had already paid all of the tourist immigration fees at another port of entrance and were advised by that immigration officer we would owe NOTHING at Luperon. Our despacio to Luperon speaks for itself. This nasty little G4s 'person' refused to acknowledge the government issued documents from the other port and threatened us he would stop us coming ashore and from leaving the harbor. Refused us access to the Commandante office. He basically called his own governments' issued documents false, and called us liars. Our immigration documents each had individual red serial numbers and a red seal stamped on a government letterhead form with signature, date, and amount paid. he claimed they were false papers and we would have to purchase his hoakey little printed papers that anyone could have printed on a PC. No signature no numbers.... he was wearing a tag and shirt that had no official government capacity such as DR navy, immigration, customs, etc.
Yes it is a cute town with nice people that tolerate an illegal operation at the government dock that PHYSICALLY THREATENS people. OF COURSE the Commandante gets a cut of the action on these fake pieces of paper called 'tourist cards'. That is obvious, or the Commandante would put a stop to it. The harbor waters and high water mark are owned by the DR Nation, not some mafia styled organization. This G4s person claims he does the same thing in Samana so beware. After what just happened in Samana with a kidnapping of cruisers and this recent posture of the Commandante in seems best to bypass DR.

Luperon is a great harbour, well sheltered, excellent holding and a nice town. Unfortunately the port officials are very unpleasant. A young well dressed man with a flash car and a G4S badge who works from the port authority office insisted we paid $10 US each for 'tourist permits'. We checked with CESTUR in town (armed tourist security officials) and they told us we shouldn't pay anything, and refer the port guy to them. We put off the payment for a few days, but eventually, we were no longer allowed out of the port into town. We had to accept a lift to the ATM, and pay up. Meanwhile, some people who arrived at the same time as us were not allowed to leave (because of the weather, which was poor for just a few hours) for over 2 days, and all five of them had to re-arrange flights. When we asked for a despacho to leave, we were told we'd have to pay another 1500 pesos and provide photocopies of our passports (again) - all the following day, which is the day we inteneded to leave. Since the weather window for our trip was small and we were fed up with the officials, we did a runner at dawn (despite no engines and very little wind!). Be warned too that the bank is very unreliable. The only ATM is currently broken (somebody smashed it). When it worked, it only sometimes worked, and only coughed up smaller amounts than 2000 pesos. Changing money inside the bank never took less than an hour, sometimes two.

Have been here about 6 weeks and love, love, love the people here! Commandante Brian was given a promotion due to his great work here and things are a little more lax because of it. Theft of fuel at the dinghy dock is on the rise and it remains to be seen what the new commandant will do about it. Other than that, our experience has been completely crime free and we highly recommend this anchorage to cruisers.

It was reported on the Cruiseheimers SSB Net that the fuel being sold by tenders in the Luperon Harbor in the Dominican Republic has been contaminated. One vendor with the tender named "Ronnie" has been particularly bad about having contaminated fuel. It was not specified whether the fuel was gasoline or diesel fuel. So if you are buying fuel in Luperon, be careful and use your Baha Filter.
